Future You Cambridge, a UK-based D2C health supplements company, has successfully secured its initial £550,000 equity crowdfunding target on Seedrs. The funding round has attracted nearly 70 Seedrs investors. The company is now offering 6.35% in equity at a £8,108,776 pre-money valuation.

Founded in 2012, Future You Cambridge stated it is on a mission is to help people live longer, healthier lives by creating clinically proven, effective health supplements.

“We sell clinically proven health supplements which improve lives, direct to consumers. The health supplement sector has plenty of products, but little evidence of which products work, and which ones are right for you. This creates a confusing space for customers to navigate. Our supplements work, and our customers evidence this by buying on subscription time and time again and by telling us their transformational stories.”

Future You Cambridge also observed that Covid-19 has heightened consumers’ awareness of the fact that everyone needs to take responsibility for their own health.

At FutureYou Cambridge, we are investing in expanding our product ranges to serve even more people, as well as providing better digital tools to help our customers find the products they need.

Since launching its brand, FutureYou Cambridge, in 2016, the company noted it has sold to over 100,000 customers. In regards to what the Seedrs funds will be used for, Future You Cambridge stated:

Funding is primarily allocated to scaling up direct advertising campaigns that already have great customer acquisition metrics, to further accelerate our business’ growth. We intend to expand our product range by more than 10 new products over the next twelve months, addressing two new customer segments, as well as expanding our offering across our existing segments. We believe that this will require an investment of £200,000 in additional inventory.”

Future You Cambridge then added it will also invest heavily in its website technology and have some exciting tools planned for customers to help them find the perfect supplements coming up in the next few months. The campaign is set to close at the end of July.

Overfunding: Pizza Brand @pizza Quickly Secures £820,000 Funding Target Through Crowdcube Campaign

@Pizza, a UK-based pizza brand, has quickly secured its initial £820,000 funding target just days after launching its equity crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube. The company is now aiming is to give consumers the best pizza they have ever had, every time.

“Consumers crave new experiences. Yet the UK pizza and Italian restaurant market, which is worth £5.2bn, lacks differentiation, quality, consistency and value, which will impact restaurant viability in the ‘new-norm’. @pizza’s modern, fast, counter operation can create hand-crafted pizzas cooked in 90 seconds, placing the brand for growth in a socially distanced world. Having achieved successful growth and critical acclaim (@pizza is currently ranked #1 restaurant in Birmingham and #1 pizza restaurant in Edinburgh for over two years) with its existing fast-casual restaurants, @pizza now sees opportunities to grow.”

@Pizza further revealed that it is planning to use ‘semi-permanent’ restaurant units situated in high traffic density suburban carparks to drive growth.

“With an ability to cook 10 high-quality pizzas a minute, these restaurants will offer contactless takeaway, home delivery and incorporate the UK’s first pizza drive-thrus. This allows flexibility of site selection and the ability to relocate without significant abortive costs.”

Funds from the Crowducbe campaign will be used to continue the growth and development of the @Pizza brand.

Update: UK Banking Managing App RoosterMoney Now Nearing £2.1 Million Through Seedrs Funding Round

Avatar

Published

on

RoosterMoney, a UK-based money managing mobile app, is now nearing £2.1 million through its equity crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs. The funding round was launched less than two weeks ago and has already attracted more than 440 Seedrs investors.

As previously reported, RoosterMoney was founded in 2015 and claims to be transforming the way families manage pocket money.

“Our mission is to take children from their first steps in understanding the value of money to their first bank account.”

RoosterMoney’s global mission is to change the way millions of families talk to their children about money and help them develop financial confidence. The fintech’s app has been designed to help families whatever age their kids are: from a star chart for ages 3 and up, to a virtual pocket money tracker, then ultimately to their own prepaid debit card (currently the UK only) with a focus on family-friendly controls and oversight taking them to 14 and up.

“We have a generation of kids growing up with technology in a society that is becoming increasingly cashless; Covid is accelerating this. Research shows that by the age of 7 we start to shape many of the money habits that stick with us for life, yet less than half of children say they have learnt about money in the classroom. We believe families need a dedicated solution that empowers children to engage with their money.This is a HUGE opportunity to transform pocket money and leverage technology to do this at scale.”

RoosterMoney’s current model is the following:

  • Free: Access to RoosterMoney’s tracker features to introduce families to the banking app, with over 30% of families who sign up taking out at least one premium subscription.
  • Rooster Plus (£14.99 / $18.99 per year per family): Additional premium features, including a chore management system by feature-set on the market.
  • Rooster Card (£24.99 first card, £19.99 per additional card per year): Families can upgrade their kids to a prepaid card with child friendly settings and flexible parental controls to give reassurance.

Funds from the Seedrs round will be used for the development of the RoosterMoney’s platform. It is set to close at the end of October.
